In February, 2018, our team from Ada’s will be traveling to the UN Headquarters in Vienna, to attend the global conference ‘The Zero Project’. The Zero Project is an initiative by the Essl Foundation which focuses on the rights of people with disabilities. This year the conference theme is ‘Accessibility’ with a special focus on solutions, methods and concepts from around the world.
Our collaboration with Access Earth, a platform for rating accessibility of public spaces will be showcased as an Innovative practice. Matt McCann, the founder of Access Earth will be giving a talk on the Access Earth app and web platform and will showcase the research conducted by Ada’s, which was instrumental in the development of a user friendly product.
The conference will also feature organizations like Microsoft, UNDESA, Google, UNICEF, Enable India, OrCam and many more. You can find the entire list of attendees and speakers here.
We will be sharing a detailed look at our research collaboration with Access Earth in the coming weeks.
